    customizable cars that handle extremely well, respond to damage, and have lights and fuel systems
    by customizable i mean shit like turbo/supercharging, suspension height, gear ratios, automatic or manual transmissions etc

    issues i see potentially are their simulated physics and lighting causing performance drags on server, as well as not having some of the familiar cars we use like the lovely niva :(

    the base comes with the prewar hl2 cars - sedans, coupes, trucks and vans, but i would suggest other packs which come with other cool models.

    • well-handling cars that can be damaged, modded, and repaired
    • cars that are otherwise unrepresented (civilian vehicles)

    mainly i just want the better handling and the ability to raise suspensions on cars so i can drive over a curb without the gubbins cars flipping upside down and slaughtering hapless roleplayers
    yep

    PROGRESS

    Played with this addon on a different server. Works pretty well, hell if you drive like a retard the lights can get smashed out, and if you drive off cliffs the axles/transmission will sound damaged. And from there, any further damage leads to smoking, then exploding which will destroy the vehicle and kill the driver. Comes with a handy tool, to edit the properties of the car, which does require a bunch of testing, any wrong input makes the car either snail speed, or godspeed. Also comes with armed vehicles in the basic pack, like a HL2 APC, combine and regular, a Sherman tank and a Tiger tank for some reason.

    I was going to make a thread for this but apparently there's already one

    they handle more realistically than source vehicles, they're a little easier to drive, and like scumbo said they respond to damage. sometimes it's tedious to get the settings just right, but there's also a vehicle dupe tool with the addon (since adv dupe doesn't quite work with this) so you can save stuff.

    there's already an equivalent on the workshop for pick-up trucks, humvees, anything else in the gubbins pack (probably possible to convert those to simfphys script anyway), and there's armed versions of a lot of these vehicles as well. it'd definitely be worth trying on the server

    just using the hl2 ones you can get something pretty close to the Niva by playing around with the settings (and unlike the Niva, you can find volkswagens pretty easily in the US)

    the base addon also comes with synergy cars that fit the setting pretty well

    [​IMG]

    if you play with the settings and apply submaterials from the wrecked hl2 cars, you ccan get some pretty run-down scavenger type vehicles too:

    also that vehicle pack scumbo linked in the OP has a lot of american cars that fit the setting pretty well:

    we should definitely be using these for TRP

    • a muscle car
    • a police car
    • 1-2 trucks (other than but including the gubbins cars)
    • MOTORCYCLE?? maybe not on simf, something on the source base
    • the rebel cars from the 'driveable hl2 cars' addon we used to have on hl2
    • jeep (crunchy cherokee)
    all stuff thats relevant to the world ending in 1997

    can anyone find a relevant police car that doesnt use a huge material addon? i wanted to use one of the caprice or monaco police addons but they both used shared content addons that would put the filesize into the sky

    When this added? This would be really good with convoys so that the next time we go on a road trip with deadeye and friends we can have a tank and not just a bunch of trucks and jeeps and instead we got apc's with machineguns and tanks with shells that can take out a t-700. Very good

    Just to say these would have to be coded to work with the script, as with another server which tried to implement this on it broke every vehicle on the server, you couldn’t sit down at all. I don’t doubt that it could be fixed. The cars love to fucking flip though and I love that

    Im probably gonna be happy with this but I dont want to have fuckin loads of random shite looking stuff added which is like 42 gigs in size

    If we can narrow down the content and compress it into our own pack, maybe sort out the textures to fit TRP like i did with the current trucks etc........ill be happy

    Right then, since this thread has been dead a month and there has been to my knowledge no word on it, i've gotten the three things that are a must with this pack.

    First, the base pack of course, can't live without it since it adds all we need for it.
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=771487490

    Next, the armored vehicles pack. Plenty of people have been wanting vehicles that are able to shoot, and hell if we do convert the vehicles over the district 9 jeep can have a working turret. But these add a bunch of vehicles that are able to shoot ranging from the military jeep from synergy, the APC in half life, and even a couple tanks that i'm sure people would love to shoot. Great thing to have in Trp with all the s2k that happens and now people arent gods in vehicles.
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=831680603&searchtext=Simfphys+Tank

    Last thing is the main body of vehicles that most people would want. If of course needs some tweaks as the armored vehicles can blow as easy as the others from what I've tested. It has a Humvee and another armored vehicle that has the same digital camo thats on Tech Com trucks, and as said above its all American vehicles. No need to reskin them either as they are all dusty and rusting.
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=863277078

    Also would like word on if they may be tested with TRP to see how they handle.
